PX Motion / Smartpen to enhance remote collaboration

PX Motion
PX Motion

Next to the radical increase of remote collaborations, studies show that the lack of human interaction and authenticity in remote collaborations have a negative effect on the quality of communication as well as motivation and eventually health. PX Motion is a portable solution that enhances the quality of communication and allows more intuitive interaction among colleagues. The pen as an input device paired with a digital application captures its users body language and creates an abstract visualisation to improve authentic interaction.
